    Hidden costs

    Beware if you are going to linger over your dinner with coffee that each refill of the small cup of regular coffee costs an additional $2.00. The staff does not mention that and it is not on the menu. Also, the calamari is particularly tough. Besides that the pasta is good and it seems they are attentive but in a hurry to get you out for the next guests.

    Faulous Food

    This is one of the best Italian Restaurants I have ever visited. The pasta was all homemade and the prices and services were fantastic. Our meal was more than reasonable priced, the wait staff were pleasant and efficient. Five stars all the way

    Feel Like We're Coming Home!

    Whenever we are in NYC we try to stay on the Upper West Side just to go to La Vela. We love going here for dinner and have asked friends and family to meet us in the city and ALWAYS at this restaurant. It feels like home. The staff is friendly and always make you feel welcome. We are headed back in August and will probably have both evening meals at La Vela!

    The Rent Must be Cheap

    Seriously I dont understand how this place is able to stay open. Its always empty and I found out why on a cold desperate night last winter.

    Pleasantly Surprised!

    This place is amazing. As a self-proclaimed Italian food fanatic I cannot even begin to describe how good the food is from la Vela. We ordered in delivery and the food came in about 30 minutes and was piping hot. We got bruschetta. chicken parm, and penne a la vodka and one dish was better than the next. The brushetta had big chunks of fresh mozzerella and the portions were huge. I have tried almost all of the italian restaurants on the UWS and La Vela is definitely the best.

    Love This Place!

    I order frequently from La Vela. The service is great and the food is always fresh and well prepared. Because of the din it is easier to order online. This is a popular crowded place!
